My PC spec:
16gb ram 2600 mhz
Windows 10 fresh installed most recent updates
Most recent gpu driver
Regulary on mission fps is above 60. Up to 90 on empty locations.
When fights start, when i see many enemies on screen at once, fps is good. But when some explosion or power sword hits many models at once the FPS drops to magic mumber 42.
No matter of visual settings, all lowest or all medium or some high.
While my system is not even hot, GPU works 80-95% maximum and goes below 70 degrees
CPU load is below 30% total, not higher than 60% usually on most loaded thread.
Because games in general don’t parallelize well. DT does parallelize better than a lot of games, but still it doesn’t parallelize well. Single core performance matters more than performance per core multiplied by the number of cores. A few of your cores are loaded well, and the rest have no work to do.
The 9900k supposed to turbo to 5 GHz, sounds like you’ve configured it wrong.
Memory speeds can matter. On my old system, 8700k, I went from ddr4 2400 to ddr4 3600 and I did see a very noticeable 20ish% boost in performance in the game I was playing at the time (Ark) I did not test with DT, it wasn’t out yet.
5ghz is for 2 cores. Multicoore speed limited, because of heat and power consumption.
And since even when works only browser in windows, it uses 3-5 coes, so it never runs on that 5ghz.
So I undervolted and made all cores no matter of amount used to work same speed.
okay, thank you for reply
Still this is very strange, since I have vermintide, and there on any hordes i have no fps drops at all, CPU just loads more and shows same picture, with phycics, gibbing, bodies, etc
